Dun & Bradstreet, a global provider of business data and analytics, has added ESG RegisteredTM to its product catalog in Nigeria to help companies project their environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials on a global level.
The solution will facilitate firms’ ambition to gain an edge over competitors through an industry-trusted seal, according to a statement by the company.
“Through the release of the product, Dun & Bradstreet will recognise companies committed to sustainable business practices and award them a certificate with ESG ratings,” the statement said.
It said small, medium and large businesses could utilise the product to showcase their commitment to sustainability and enter the company’s data cloud – a service used by over 92 per cent of Fortune 500 companies to vet customers, suppliers and other business partners.
Country Head at Dun & Bradstreet Nigeria, Womo Diriyai, highlighted that by combining technology with ESG data, the company recognises sustainable organisations by awarding them with a badge of recognition that widens their projection at a global scale.
“With the rapid growth in digitalisation in Nigeria, it is essential to implement technology to assure a green future. ESG RegisteredTM is an all-in-one solution for responsible companies looking to showcase their ESG performance and fill gaps in adherence to the ESG guidelines,” he said.
He added that companies get a unique opportunity to turn their sustainable business practices into an advantage through the product.
